Deepest sympathy to Ann and family on the loss of your brother.

November 9, 2012


Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of friendly smiles
For golden happy hours-
Happiness at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through

Please accept our deepest sympathy for the loss of a dear and beloved friend and "brother" Prestley Hayes. May he rest in peace. He will be sorely missed.
Calvin and Alberta Chadwick and family
